Background The company is a large auto group based in the U.S., with more than 23 auto dealerships and number one in overall car sales in the State of New York. Twenty20 Solutions was asked to provide a solution to prevent unauthorized entry to the rear parking lots at three of the group's locations. Challenges The group was experiencing theft of automobiles and car parts from vehicles overnight in rear parking lots at their auto dealerships. This theft was causing substantial losses associated with parts replacement and repair, as well as inventory loss.
Solution Twenty20 Solutions proposed a solution consisting of four lift arm gates to control access, one at each entry and exit point to the rear parking lots.
Benefits & Values
Better Access Tracking
The increase in security reduced overall vehicle thefts and deterred additional trespassing. This saves time and resources on seeking out and prosecuting offenders, in addition to the monetary savings resulting from theft prevention.
With Twenty20's lift arm gate solutions, all after-hour entries to the rear lots became logged and tracked. Managers were now able to review all access events and see if any suspicious parties had gained entry, as well as see if any vehicles had left unauthorized. This greatly assisted with vehicle theft prevention.
Certain traditional access control solutions can represent a headache for dealership staff and visitors. Our solutions allows entry granting in real-time from anywhere via our online Novus™ AIoT platform, as well as traditional keypad and card entry.
The access control solution provided by Twenty20 reduced theft and deterred vandalism at the dealerships, providing a cost savings of approximately $75,000.
